'I only want to speak to people who understand football' - Klopp furious after derby draw

  |   Football

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left fuming with referee Craig Pawson after a late penalty helped Everton secure an unlikely 1-1 draw at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds had dominated the Merseyside derby from the outset and took a deserved lead three minutes before the break through Mohamed Salah's 13th Premier League goal of the season.

Liverpool squandered a number of good opportunities in the second period and were made to pay for their profligacy when Wayne Rooney lashed home from the spot after Dejan Lovren bundled Dominic Calvert-Lewin over in the area.

Klopp was in a combative mood after the match, taking aim at the referee and what he considered to be a negative and overly aggressive approach from Sam Allardyce's side.

"Lovren doesn't make a challenge," he fired at Sky Sports when it was suggested that the penalty decision was correct. "Calvert-Lewin makes a step. The hand is on the back. If you think it is a penalty say so. Does my opinion change anything?

"I only want to speak to people with a little bit of understanding about football. I am sorry, I am wrong and you are right. Obviously I am not in the mood to answer questions.

"Our performance was good. I saw only one team playing. I can't believe the situation with all the challenges. We were clean and didn't make any fouls.
